Yeah...the article didn't say, but that's what I'm curious about. It's not really a reunion without Christine.

I went to a sleepaway camp when I was 12 years old and the camp decided to take us to a concert. For my group, it was a tossup between Pink Floyd's Wall tour and Stevie Nicks. We ended up getting Stevie Nicks. I remember Joe Walsh opened up for her and he was pretty good. I was still bummed that we didn't get picked for Pink Floyd.

Was at COMDEX in Vegas around 90 - 91. Stayed at the LV Hilton which was also hosting part of COMDEX in their conference center. (for those who don't know, COMDEX used to take up multiple hotels in various cities.) Anyway, Atari was at the show and in the Gold Room, they had Mick Fleetwood doing a performance with their precussion vest ( basically a wearable, midi/electic drumset ).

It was a very cool performance and as I recall Mick (who is generally rather expressive when he plays) was all over the place with that damn vest. Unfortunately, I have no idea who the other members of the "band" might have been.

Stevie used to own a number of Whataburger franchises in Phoenix metro (she still might).

My buddy got it right when he said that he looks like big ass gorilla flailing around behind his drum kit, it's all I can think of when I see video of Mick.

I might have to attend this show, I've seen a lot of the bands on my concert 'bucket list', it's time to move down to the next tier, and Fleetwood Mac would be a great show.

Their first album after McVie left for good.

It was basically buying a Buckingahm and Nicks singles album with 2 or 3 group songs. Title song is good.

The rest is total meh.

Absolutely. When I grew up, it was Stevie Nicks Fleetwood Mac all over the radio, and I liked them well enough. One day much later, I heard "Oh Well" and was like "Why didn't anybody ever tell me there was a Fleetwood Mac before Fleetwood Mac".

I'd still like to see this live not the best sound quality by any means but there are bonus frames of Mick being Mick:)

Most of Buckingham's output on 'Say You Will' was supposed to go on his 'Gift of Screws' album instead. The only differences in the intended versions and what ended up on 'Say You Will' is Stevie laid background vocals down, the exception being 'Bleed to Love Her' since that was recorded by the entire band, Christine McVie included.

That was one of the songs for me, too. The other was Rattlesnake Shake (some live version) which still holds up today.

please say they won't. Nothing sadder than a bunch of 60 something rock and rollers still trying to sound like they did 40 years ago. Unless it's the untold millions of "fans" who pony up 10 times what they paid to see them in their prime.

i disagree

i'm too young to have seen a lot of these classic rockers way back in their prime, although i remember seeing a lot of late-70s & early-80s concert footage "live" on hbo or some such (elton, fleetwood mac, queen, etc) when i was a kid

but in more recent years i've seen the rolling stones, aerosmith, eric clapton & steve winwood, huey lewis & the news (ok, they're not AS old as some of the others, but saw them 4 years ago and that was a great fun show!), and some other oldies, and in 1 month i have FRONT FRIGGIN ROW TIX to take my dad to see CROSBY STILLS & NASH as a belated birthday gift to my old man!

Still not as bad as "Time". What a piece of garbage that was.

Also, put me in the pre-1974 category, though Rumours is, as an album, better than any pre-1974 album.

Wise_Guy: I'd like to see this live (Stevie, not FM I know) just for Don Henley. He comes in and just kills it.


Henley didn't make nearly enough records, and Nicks and Henley damn sure didn't make enough together.

to me Peter Green's FM was a really good example of pretty much every blues-rock band

i really love the fleetwood mac we all know and love with buckingham/nicks. i think it's a great combination of 2 extremely talented groups
 
2012-07-12 12:21:05 PM  
A few years ago, my blues band was hired to play at a bar right next to a venue where the Mac was playing. When someone in the crowd yelled for some Fleetwood Mac, our front man said "OK, here are a couple from their first album" and we launched into "Long Grey Mare" and then "Shake Your Moneymaker". Needless to say, there were many quizzical looks as most folks were expecting something from their eponymous 1975 album.

Actually FM sounds better now than they ever have. Older, wiser, (sober) and more professional, and it shows.

However they sound hollow without McVie, she really rounded out the harmonies in the band and she is missed.

JacFlash: Wake me when Christine shows interest.


ALL of Christine's songs are nearly identical. Electric piano playing "Doo-dot'n-doo-dot'n, da-doo-doo. Doo-dot'n-doo-dot'n--doo-doo". She's the weakest member of the band, in my opinion. I skip about half of her songs when I play any Fleetwood Mac album.

Buckingham is the heavy lifter for Fleetwood Mac, and everybody knows it, and when he's teamed with Stevie they are a force to be reckoned with.

I see your point, even though your analysis of McVie's songwriting is wrong. She has two songs that sound similar, that I believe are on the same album, and that's it.

Even if what you say IS true, and lets grant it. McVie is the weak link in the band (the writing anyway, her husband is certainly no prodigy), that in no way takes away from her contribution to the band's overall sound, which is the important part.

I was a teenager when Fleetwood Mac was in its prime, and couldn't afford to see them (Mom & Dad wouldn't let me to go a rock concert, anyway). Saw Stevie Nicks for the first time in 1982. Saw her again last year. She was and is awesome.
